This weekend for me started on Friday, bright and early. I had many lavender propagations to get into the ground before A) the rain came , and B) before I headed south to Oklahoma, Pryor Creek, exactly, to celebrate mother's Day with my Mom and Dad.
I got up early, with the sunrise, and I made myself a thermos of coffee. Then I beckoned one dog and three cats to follow me out to the lavender. Although, I simplify their animal vocabulary by calling anything out of the range of our yard, "Pasture!"
She had been awaiting her call:
She was distraught about being up there doing who-knows-what, and she mewed and mewed up on the rooftop the entire time I was planting lavender:
Hands-and-knees, I crawled along the rows, trying to get those plants in before my planned 2:00 pm departure time, to drive to Pryor Creek. I did have 20 minutes to spare (kid you not!), and I lay down on the sofa with the kitchen timer on, in case I lapsed into a coma nap.
I did not! I got up, and drove five hours down to Mom & Dad's house.
Happy mother's Day! (Early)
At my Mom and Dad's we had fun family stop in all along the afternoon hours. I think we three (Mom,Dad, and I) all tried to sneak in a catnap between visitors, but all for naught, and that was OK, for sure!
It was a great time, for all.
